Geoscience is a multi-disciplinary field emphasizing the chemistry, physics, geology, hydrology, fate and contaminant transport, and economics of the earth and its naturally occurring water, energy, and mineral resources. The six different options in Geoscience are designed to meet specific needs of various workforces. The M.S. degrees in Geoscience include a wide variety of topics, many of which are interdisciplinary between the associated departments. Options with an engineering focus include Geological, Geophysical, or Hydrogeological Engineering. The Geology, Hydrogeology, and Geochemistry options have a science or an applied science focus. The Geochemistry option is administered through the Chemistry and Geochemistry Department. The Geophysical Engineering option is administered through the Geophysical Engineering Department. The Geology, Hydrogeology, Geological Engineering, and Hydrogeological Engineering options are administered through the Department of Geological Engineering. Thesis and non-thesis options are available. Applicants to the program should qualify for regular admission to the graduate school.
